Oh, what a love story this could be!
These communities and local businesses are looking for ways to reverse this trend to help ensure a vibrant future on the Prairies.
Foreign Skilled Workers are looking for communities where they can live their Canadian dream by having
a good-paying job, a great quality of life and affordable amenities.
Here is what immigration creates:
100th Meridian assists communities to begin with their end vision in mind. We develop a better understanding of immigration and educate community members on immigration pathways that could be beneficial to increasing community capacity.
Being a community immigration development firm, 100th Meridian Immigration works with communities to build immigration strategies or trains small to medium-sized businesses on how to successfully navigate pathways to obtain foreign workers.
On the opposite spectrum 100th Meridian gets daily hits and emails from foreign skilled workers wanting to learn more opportunities anywhere in Canada.
Rural communities in Canada need to fill employment gaps, find new people to buy current businesses or start new ones, community citizens to sustain their tax base and volunteers to maintain their local recreational activities and other community events.
While at the same time professionals and skilled workers from overseas are looking for employment opportunities in communities that are welcoming, safe, affordable and have a great quality of life!
Vice versa, it is impossible for a community to become aware of foreign skilled workers who have the employment skills or entrepreneurial abilities needed to sustain the local community and support them to secure a bright future!
Now 100th Meridian does not recruit foreign workers for businesses we can however create awareness of what communities are desiring immigrants to move to their area. While at the same time show casing foreign workers who are interested and willing to move to smaller towns along the Western skies of Canada.
Leading up to the Community Virtual fair we will develop a strategic immigration plan for your community that includes ensuring your community is ready, identifying local labour needs, opportunities, housing, settlement services are ready and so much more.

As a community economic developer, I have seen first-hand how stressful it can be for business owners to obtain skilled workers & for communities to develop immigration strategies.
Certified as a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant, my primary focus is to help ease the stress of rural labour shortage and develop community capacity in rural & northern regions on the Prairies. I offer a mix of one-on-one coaching, community workshops, and online training along with appropriate resources to enhance knowledge & understanding. I give communities & businesses the specific tools they need to build community capacity to be competitive to acquire skilled workers & future community members.
